Hellowz, I've just finished my review of the Skyhawk Galaxy Lx case and I'm planning to post it on wednesday, I just need to insert the pics in the review. Talking about pictures, LORDrazers review about the Smart Case Fan 2 from ThermalTake will be updated tomorrow by some nicer looking pics. (The previous ones were made with a webcam because his digicam was broke , I'm sorry for this)
PCXMods X-Trac Pro HS Optical Mouse Pad Review
The X-Trac Pro HS has a rubber foam pad underneath to ensure that the pad does not move around while in use. The construction of the pad is not solid, which means one can roll the pad up and toss into a LAN bag easily without it sticking into your back when transporting gear. The lower right hand corner sports the X-Trac Pro HS logo. The overall thickness of the X-Trac Pro HS is at a comfortable height that will keep the wrist straight, therefore easing the strain that could lead to Upper Limb Disorders (ULDs) and Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). The shape of the X-Trac Pro HS is rectangular, unlike the Ratpadz and the Speed-Pad which both have the arch at the bottom.

Speeze EasyStream II and SP414B8 Pentium4 Coolers Review
The two coolers that were sent to me are the Speeze EasyStream II (9T278B1M3) and the SP414B8. The last one is a development sample so you won’t find any info about it. It still doesn’t have a name, that’s why I’ll refer to it with its code number. I’ve asked Spire Netherlands and all they told me about it was: the SP414B8 will be very cheap and scream for decent performance.

Iwill 6 In 1 Card Reader
These days, just about everyone has a digital camera. No more rolls of film, no more paying to have your pictures developed. Times definitely have changed for the better... The only problem is that over the years, companies have developed several different so called "standards" for memory cards. Change is always good, but I find it to be a real pain to find the right memory card reader. Eventually, you end up with several different card readers cluttering up your desk. Iwill has tackled this problem head on and has developed a new "universal" memory card reader that supports 6 types of flash memory cards!

Thermaltake Spark 7 HSF
Thermaltake has been in the cooling business for a long time. Remember the Golden Orb? That was the first Thermaltake heatsink I ever got to play with! I had my P3 600E overclocked to 800MHz at default voltage and the Golden Orb kept my P3 nice and cool. Ever since then, I've been hooked on Thermaltake. Times have changed and now orbs are long gone. Orbs were once the thing to have, but with CPU speeds doubling every year, heatsink technology has changed dramatically. Look around, you just don't see many aluminum coolers anymore. Today's top heatsinks have gone to the thin fin designs with copper as there choice of metals. Thermaltake brings both of these ideas to the table with there latest P4 heatsink, the Spark 7. Today I'm going to compare the Spark 7 to the last couple P4 heatsinks I've reviewed, the Thermalright AX-478 and the Dr. Thermal Extreme TI-T707TN.

Seagate Cheetah 10K.6 Ultra320 Review
I know what some of you are thinking, SCSI technology is expensive. Well, you are right, it is expensive. However, you mustn't think about the actual startup costs of going SCSI. In order to appreciate what SCSI can do for you, you must think about LONG TERM COSTS. For instance, most IDE hard drives only have a backed service life of about 1 year under normal use. You are lucky to get two or three years out of an IDE drive without the drive degrading. With the Cheetah 10K.6, you are guaranteed a 5 year service life and a MTBF of 1.2 million hours.
